LA PAZ- BOLIVIA
3rd October 2002- La Paz
We are in the highest capital city in the world at 3,855m high. We can really feel the altitude when going uphill, upstairs and when drinking alcohol- we have become very cheap drunks!! La Paz is actually quite a happening place and it is a lot more modern than we thought it was going to be. We have met up with lots of lond distance bikers- John and Annet from Germany, John and Annette from England, Chris and Simmy from Germany and Belgium- and wow can they party!!! We have got the shock rebuilt (AGAIN!) and we are both on diets to help the poor shock out!!
Lake Titicaca was amazing and a beautiful drive- amazing blue with the snow capped Andes in the background.
With high altitudes comes cold weather, so we have got some down jackets, hats, warm socks etc, all at cheap prices, in fact Belindas down jacket was FREE!! A girl swapped it for Belindas 15 year old fibrepile jacket!! Both very happy with the deal!
Tomorrow we are off to do The Most Dangerous Road In The World on the motorbike- dont worry Mum, if it is raining we no go!!!
